(Mexican Mountain Scarlet Sage) Dark red calyxes cup the large red flowers of this lovely Mexican native which blooms from early winter through spring. Although this clone of Salvia gesneriiflora is dwarf form, it grows 6 feet tall and wide similar to our other dwarf, Salvia gesneriiflora 'Green Calyx Form', which we've nicknamed "Tiny." We'll call this one "Tiny Too."
(Big Mexican Scarlet Sage) This heavily blooming Salvia from Mexico has heart-shaped leaves and spectacular flower spikes up to 18 inches long from winter through spring. The blooms are bright red-orange with rich purple-black calyxes.
(Cabrillo Giant Yellow Sage) Large apricot-yellow flowers are an attraction of this cross between two Mexican species -- Salvia madrensis (Forsythia Sage) and the volcanic sage Salvia gesneriiflora (Mexican Scarlet Sage).
I cannot find the salvias for our hummers available locally that FBTS carries. The first year I ordered I could not believe how large plants were. And two of them were even in bloom in the shipping box!
I've been gardening for hummingbirds for the past 30+ years. Since my needs are so specific (and I live in an area where most of the best hummer attractants do not), I've used mail order suppliers almost exclusively. My choices have worked over the years - especially in 2005 when we were visited...
This nursery should be the model for every other nursery. The plants they send are large, healthy, and ready to be planted after only a couple of days of recovery from shipping.

You ship beautiful plants. They are large and healthy. I was so impressed that I gave my doctor your website information as he loves Salvias. I told that you had every one ever cultivated and he wouldn't be disappointed.
This was my second order, six plants. They were moist, green and large for their containers when they arrived. All are planted and doing well so far. I am very pleased.
Just received my plants today from Flowers by the Sea,(my first order) and WOW, they are fantastic! I could smell them outside of the box, so when I opened it, it was awesome! The packing was great, and I am so glad I received them before it got too hot here in Texas! I cannot wait to plant...
As I have said before your plants arrive in beautiful condition with great root systems and are growing nicely. My only suggestion? Better estimation of the ultimate dimensions of the plants. I realize this will vary greatly depending on the quality of the soil but 2 examples that stand out from...
I ordered 25 plants in two separate orders. They arrived quickly and in great condition. Don't be put off by the small size of the pots (3.5\"), as the plants are large and healthy, more like 1 gallon size plants you'd get from your local nursery. In only a couple of weeks, several of the salvias...
FBTS was great. They let me know when my item was available. Their packaging was very plant sensitive, and the plant was healthy. I am looking forwards to spring to see it bloom
Always healthy, great looking plants when I unpack them. Really appreciate the huge selection of unusual plants that have become so hard to find. Thanks you FBTS!
